    Tip: Make your own tie with a silk scarf

    Out and about in London, Kate Moss sported a silk neck tie with her Isabel Marant Tacy Suede Printed Calf Hair Leather Boots ($1500), leopard print trousers, and velvet blazer. The DIY accessory is a welcome alternative to a scarf and gives off a cool, slightly undone, Keith Richards vibe.

    Tip: Swap your cocktail dress for a simple black suit

    The only thing better than a sharply dressed man is a sharply dressed 16-year-old girl. Hailee Steinfeld cut a striking figure at Olivia Holt's Sweet 16 birthday party in a tailored 3.1 Phillip Lim tuxedo jacket and trousers (both from the brand's Holiday 13 collection), paired with a crisp white button-down and strappy Stuart Weitzman heels.

    Tip: Experiment with a long tuxedo jacket

    A tailored, knee-skimming coat—like the one Mary-Kate Olsen wore recently while strolling the streets of New York—adds a sense of gravitas to any ensemble.

    Tip: Polish your evening ensemble with a top hat

    To ensure this look comes off less Mad Hatter, more louche ‘60s rock star, follow Sienna Miller’s lead (seen here at the Another Magazine part in London last month) and pair your top hat with a tough chic accessory like over-the-knee boots.

    Tip: Swing a boyish blazer over your girly frock

    Moda Operandi’s Taylor Tomasi Hill paired a Marc Jacobs Mini Plaid Menswear Blazer ($1400) with a floral Rochas skirt for a fashion week ensemble that reminded us why she’s the undisputed queen of mismatching. Also on Hill, Prada shoes and an SFK Licorice iPhone Case with Bracelet ($60).
